16 Boys: South Coast Flame 0-1 Hills United

Our U/16’s boys were out-muscled in the first 20 minutes of this contest, before managing to claw their way back into the game for a 15 minute period.

At half time, the Flame re-grouped and devised a plan to exploit Hills in wider areas and the press to win the ball. When the Flame did this, it worked well and the boys were able to create some goal scoring chances.

Unfortunately the Flame were unable to score and get at least a point out of the game. Hills United were a well organised team that liked to play through the middle with an extra midfielder.

Eamon showcased great distribution out from the back.


18 Boys: South Coast Flame 0-1 Hills United

On Sunday, the U/18’s Flame boys faced Hills United FC – a side who have won every game so far this season. It was always going to be a tough ask for our boys, but they did their best to hold the opposition at bay and provided a quality game of football.

Hills started as the more aggressive of the two teams, looking for opportunities to push fast and past our back line. Our solid back four held their own and thwarted each attack. As the game progressed, Flame found their groove and with smoother plays and quicker transitions, had a few opportunities to score as well.

A corner to Hills just before the half time whistle saw the opposition find an attackers feet before he quickly slipped the ball past our keeper and into the goal. Hills going into the half-time break a goal to the good.

Although Flame were stronger and dominated the ball in the second half, we just couldn’t find the net. Some exceptional shots on goal were attempted by our attackers, but flew high or just missed. Our boys worked hard to create opportunities with some excellent ball movement and on target passes. Keeper Eamon Everett made some great saves ensuring the score didn’t include any more goals against.

Both teams brought determination and hard work to the game, but Hills leave with the points this week with the final score remaining at 0-1.

Flame travel to Rydalmere next week to take on the Lions, who have only 1 win to their last 6 rounds. Our boys will be looking to take control, focus on finding the back of the net and come home with the points.


Player of the week: Aiden Chard

Aiden put in a strong defensive effort and made life very difficult for the attacking opposition.
